Boys Over Flowers [Review]

15 Oct

I’ll preface this by saying it’s one of my favorites. The story is a mess, the plot doesn’t always stay on track, they play the theme song *way* too often (I still twitch when I hear the opening to it), and the b-lead is not the best actor (and I love him anyway), but all that said, this was an awesome, cracktastic show. They threw in all the usual soap opera stuff — evil mom, secret revenge plans, kidnapping, amnesia. Lee Min Ho as Jun Pyo was awesome, though, so between that and the romantic chemistry I finished it a very happy camper.


(via Wikipedia)

ShinHwa School is a school for rich people, where Goo Jun Pyo, the heir of the global corporation ShinHwa Group, Yoon Ji Hoo, Soh Yi Jung, and Song Woo Bin attend school. They form a gang called F4. Goo Jun Pyo, the leader of F4, is the main ruffian.

Geum Jan Di, who is not from a rich family, ends up attending ShinHwa School when she saves a boy from jumping off the rooftop and is given a scholarship to quiet down the publicity the incident caused. The entire school worships the F4 except for Geum Jan Di. However, she likes Yoon Ji Hoo, who appears to be different from the other three. Geum Jan Di finally speaks up against F4 to defend her friend. From then on, she becomes Goo Jun Pyo’s main rival. Almost every time Geum Jan Di is bullied, Yoon Ji Hoo helps her in some way. Geum Jan Di and Goo Jun Pyo’s rivalry intensifies, but at the same time it is a source of amusement for him as Geum Jan Di has now caught his attention.

The story develops and Goo Jun Pyo slowly starts falling for Geum Jan Di. On the other hand, Geum Jan Di’s attention is on Yoon Ji Hoo, her savior, but ultimately, as the story progresses, her heart is with Goo Jun Pyo. The couple faces many obstacles as they continue to struggle for their love.
